School Reviews

5  
My kids are no longer at this school and are now in 8th grade and 11th grade, now in a different WA school district. Many of the same teachers and one key staff member are still teaching and sharing their expertise there. It is still an amazing school! It's a MicroSociety school and yes, schools sometimes experience growth and transition. ANY school, regardless of socio-economic and race and/or ethnic disposition, can have problems and successes! This school gets my A++ rating or a 5, with a 5 being the highest rating. Don't miss this opportunity to attend this school if you live in the neighborhood or district.
